Sounds of the Chazen: This Beautiful World

Museum education assistant Serendipity Swanstrom-Stage has created playlists on Spotify inspired by the Chazen’s permanent collection. Listen to a beautiful score while you enjoy these works from the collection. From Swanstrom-Stage, “There is a delicacy to every windswept snowflake, errant flower petal, silent shimmer of ripples reflecting the afternoon sun. Here are images that evoke that warm sense of awe at the natural beauty Earth provides, and tunes that sing its praises.”
